Between 15 to 20 Tons of Pseudoephedrine Seized in Honduras

first_imgBy Dialogo December 03, 2012 Honduran authorities found between 15 to 20 tons of pseudoephedrine or paste to manufacture this drug hidden inside a tunnel on a farm 200 km north of Tegucigalpa, on November 29. “They found 344 bales of the drug, that might be pseudoephedrine or paste, weighing between 15 to 20 tons,” said Elvis Guzmán, the spokesperson for the Prosecutor’s office in the northern part of the country. The police operation started on November 24 and resulted in at least 12 arrests, as well as property seized worth 100 million dollars. According to Guzmán, the drug was wrapped in plastic and tape and hidden inside a 15-meter-long cement tunnel. “This would be the largest drug seizure; however, we still need to verify what kind of drug it is. Everything indicates that it is pseudoephedrine, but we need to verify the exact amount and if there are any more drugs on the premises,” he added. Honduras and other Central American countries have become a transit and storage area for drugs coming from South America, destined for the United States.last_img read more
